LIKES: Truly superior keyboard action, feel and key shape; Volume control via very accessible knob is very handy feature; Excellent illumination of keys; Easier to keep keys clean; Ability to change lighting patterns - although not yet used - could be useful in future. Nicely styled looks very efficient and professional.
DISLIKES: Labelling on dual-use keys not clear and easy to find!. (i.e mostly top two key rows); Very expensive compared to other keyboards and jury still out on whether typing speed is substantially improved ; Tried the hand-rest not a great help
The Vulcan is a precision gaming tool that lets you sense its performance from the first glance and the first keystroke. The Vulcan is the first keyboard to feature Roccat-developed Titan Switches. The switches, designed from the ground up, were built for gamers craving a keystroke that was swift and precise while still being tactile. As well as a tactile and silent 1.8mm actuation point with a 3.6mm travel distance, the switches feature structural housing to reduce wobble while being pressed. They bring electrical contact bouncing to a minimum, allowing the firmware to recognize input 20 percent faster. The key caps are also ultra-light – 50 percent lighter than standard – for that rapid response. An anodized aluminium plate reinforces the Vulcan’s structural integrity and protects against wear and tear. The detachable palm rest and low-profile keyboard design improve ergonomics, making it suitable for long periods of game time. Key caps are specially designed for easy maintenance. They match the spacing and surface area of traditional caps but feature a shortened height to make cleaning easy, complementing the Titan Switch’s dust-resistant housing perfectly. The Vulcan provides the best possible platform for the AIMO lighting engine. Each switch features an individually configurable, long-life LED capable of displaying 16.8M colours in a variety of special effects. Transparent switch housing means the multicolour lighting shines impressively and is spread evenly from every key. AIMO represents both a lighting engine and an eco-system at once. Its functionality grows based on the number of AIMO-enabled connected devices. It reacts organically based on your usage, presenting state-of-the-art illumination scenarios without the need for configuration. The palm rest adds a subtle level of comfort and support. With mixer-style media keys and wheel, you’ve got sophisticated function as well as comfort.
